What does the procedure entail?
For many patients, a lip lift will involve removing a small section of skin and tissue from below the nose and re-attaching the skin, which creates a natural lifting effect and causes more of the pink inner lip to show. The incision line is directly below the nose structure, hidden from view once healed.
Does a lip lift leave a scar?
Any incision will leave a scar. The visibility of the scar is a direct reflection of the finesse with which your procedure is performed. Dr. Mesa employs a meticulous suturing technique, and the scar will become virtually invisible. As it is directly beneath your nose, it will be almost invisible.
